Priest Suspended For Hoverboarding During Service

December 29, 2015


A Catholic priest in the Philippines has been suspended from the Diocese of San Pablo after members of the congregation complained that his hoverboarding around during Christmas Eve Mass was inappropriate, especially after they realized what all the money in the offering basket went to last week.

In its statement, the Diocese of San Pablo added, "The priest said that it was a wake up call for him; he acknowledged that his action was not right and promised that it will not happen again."

"He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event. He would like to apologize for what happened," the diocese said.

There's a short clip video of the action after the jump, which includes the priest doing a double spin at the 10-second mark and earning himself some sweet applause. What was going through this guy's head? I mean, besides what would Jesus NOT do? Sadly, the congregation will never get to see the quadruple spin and figure eights he was working on for Easter Mass.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Ace, who agrees real priests learn how to use devil-sticks.

    The only thing upsetting me about this is the fact that a segway with no handles is somehow successfully marketed as a hoverboard. -_-

    He could have doubled his offerings and avoided any complaints if his robe had been long enough to conceal the hoverboard...

    He should switch to a Baptist congregation, those priests get to drive around in Escalades.

  • pojojuniper

    Last I knew, Baptists don't have "priests." They have ministers, preachers, or pastors, but no priests.

    Well then that makes all the difference.

    But seriously, this is an issue when the gold and jewel encrusted shit isn't?? Glad to know the Catholic church can draw the line somewhere. FFS

    Organized religion is bat shit crazy.

    Thanks, makers of the DoucheBag-Board. Diddling kids has now become the SECOND worst thing the Catholic Priests have been guilty of.
